In the Navionics Boating app the SonarPhone feature allows you to have a fishfinder on your screen and create your own personal HD bathymetry map with SonarCharts Live!
The fishfinder feature enables you to view live sonar and Navionics charts, both full screen and split screen, within the same app from your kayak, runabout, or any fishing boat! Every time you connect, future SonarCharts can be enhanced with depth data from anywhere you go.
Even better, SonarCharts Live allows you to create a new personal HD bathymetry map that displays on your device in real-time while navigating. The new chart appears as an additional layer over either Nautical Charts or SonarCharts. Data is saved for individual use and can be shared with Navionics to improve SonarCharts.
What you need
To enjoy the fishfinder feature, you need the latest version of the Navionics Boating app on your Android or Apple Tablet or Smartphone and the SonarPhone T-BOX hardware which is available for purchase here.
To create maps with SonarCharts Live in the free app version, you need to make sure you purchase a Navionics+ package from Menu > Charts & Upgrades. If you have a paid version, you don’t need anything else.
– Install the SonarPhone T-BOX device on your boat. Turn on the SonarPhone T-BOX.
– From your mobile, connect to the Wi-Fi network: Settings>Wi-Fi ON and select the “T-BOX” Network. When prompted, enter the Wi-Fi password provided to join. See the video.
– Open the Navionics Boating app. The fishfinder display will automatically appear along with SonarCharts Live creating your new personal HD bathymetry map!
With the powerful SP200 T-BOX system, you can reach depths of 240 feet with a 200kHz, Dual-Beam (20/40 degree) skimmer style transducer and temp sensor. The Skimmer style transducer can be mounted externally on the transom of your boat for high speed use or internally in fiberglass hulls, but you will lose the temp sensor option for in-hull installations.
Also included in the SP200 package is a 12 volt car plug/USB adaptor for powering your tablets or re-charging your phones
We had a great time at Radioworld this past Saturday with our ice fishing seminar and we’d like to thank all of those in attendance! We would also like to thank the four seminar speakers Matt Pezzetta from Vexilar, Aaron Shirley from MarCum, Simon Frost from Humminbird and Gerry Heels from Lowrance. Also, thanks to Pete Bowman for coming out for the day to talk on the new Garmin echo fishfinders.
Here are some pictures from the event.

We are always happy to receive feedback on products we offer. We recently received this feedback on the Micro Start XP-1 from Antigravity batteries. They produce a quality product that will boost most vehicles and provide back-up power for your electronics.
Please read below and visit our website here for more info on these great products.
The Antigravity Batteries Micro-Start has been unbelievable. Of course you only need it when conditions are their worst. Last winter was one of the coldest on record and my Micro-Start spent most of that time in my truck. That’s below minus 20 degrees for weeks at a time. Yet, without needing a refresher charge, I have boosted several six cylinder vehicles with no issues at all. I was completely surprised to tell you the truth. I have also used it to get me out of a jam when my cell phone has been dead several times. Ya, I could leave it charging in my truck but when you get out, in my case, to eat at a restaurant, I cant be without my phone for operational reasons. The XP-1 is no bigger than a deck of cards so I could continue charging it at the table and not miss a call. I’ve also used it to run my lap top in an urgent situation. This is now part of my standard kit on the north shore.
Having said that, nearly every guy in my detachment wants one and I’m going to recommend for all the Provincial Critical Incident Commanders this year.
Unfortunately, in this case, the Nuvi could not give me any detour options – there weren’t any ! I knew about the slowdown well in advance, but unfortunately thought everything would be cleaned up before I got there – wrong !
The Garmin live traffic information is excellent. On numerous occasions it reports traffic much sooner than the local news / advertising station with their traffic reports every ten minutes. Sometimes you can’t wait ten minutes !
Looking at my vehicle tracking (below) with my Bluefox GPS Tracker you can see the slowdown where the reporting points are much closer together. If you are a fleet owner, you won’t be questioning why your driver took longer than normal to arrive – you’ll have the facts right in front of you, near real time.
